Washboard descents, sketchy dirt, gravel and rocks of all shapes and sizes. You never know what youll get on a gravel ride. This new composite gravel machine features a suspension fork and engineered compliance to help you float through all of it with speed and control.
Composite frameset is designed specifically for front suspension. With 40mm of travel, the fork absorbs bumps and impacts so you can ride smoother and faster over rugged gravel and dirt.
Lowered seatstays with smaller diameter tubes absorb road shocks and vibrations. A Contact SL XR D-Fuse handlebar adds more compliance without sacrificing the stiffness needed for cornering, sprinting or climbing.
A flip chip on the rear dropout adjusts the wheelbase: short for quicker handling, or long for improved stability at speed. The long setting also allows for larger diameter tyres up to 53mm. You can use the included dropper/suspension seatpost for added capabilities, or switch to a proprietary D-Fuse seatpost or traditional 30.9mm round seatpost.
Giants High Performance Grade raw carbon material is used to produce this custom frame material in our own composite factory with a high stiffness-to-weight ratio. The front triangle of these framesets is assembled and molded as one continuous piece in a proprietary manufacturing process called Modified Monocoque Construction.
The D-Fuse seatpost and handlebar were designed to function as a system, absorbing road shocks and vibrations so you can ride farther, faster.
Allows riders to quickly adjust the geometry and rear-wheel tire clearance with eccentric, offset two-position hardware in the rear wheel dropouts.
Giants original oversized fork steerer tube technology. Designed to provide precise front-end steering performance, the systems oversized headset bearings (1 1/4 lower and 1 1/8 upper for road, 1 1/2 lower and 1 1/8 upper for mountain) and tapered steerer tube work in conjunction to provide optimal steering stiffness.
Fewer flat tires. Greater traction. Less rolling resistance and a smoother, faster ride. Giant’s Tubeless System makes it easier than ever to experience all these benefits.
